Show and Tell Friday

For today's show and tell I pulled out my dish rags/towels.

The second picture is a pair of little pants stitched together from dish rags. It has this little message attached... "Now don't get excited, and don't lose your head: These aren't for you but your dishes instead. If you pull out the yarn and pull out the stitches, you'll have two dish cloths, but you'll lose your britches." My mother gave this to me at my wedding shower (almost 15 years ago). I love them so much that I don't intend to pull them apart and use the dish rags. I do intend to pass them on to the first of my daughters to get married.

The first picture is a towel and dish cloth bunny. Here is its message, "I'm more than a bunny all tied up with bows. I serve a real purpose, so everyone knows. Just untie my ribbons and there you will see, a towel and 2 dish cloths to remind you of me." This one I've only had for a few months. It was made at a ladies fellowship at church. Again, I don't think I'll be able to bring myself to take it apart and use it. I will probably pass this one on to a daughter as well.

Of course since I currently have three daughters, somewhere along the time line I'm going to have to come up with a third creation so one daughter doesn't get left out. It's an odd little collection, isn't it?

These are too cute. I wish I had an idea to share to help with coming up with a third, but I don't. I hace some pot holders that look like boys and girls pants - too cute! Jennifer

I would definitely leave them as is! I like the idea of passing the bottom one on to your daughter! I would be tempted to learn how to make them myself so you could pass them on to others like you have received!

I got bounced today, somehow I didn't quite fit into the guidelines. That's okay, my post stands as is.

Nanny Kim,
I'll have to find out. I was sick that evening and didn't attend. The ladies made an extra one to give to me.

Ummmmm, these are amazing. I've never seen anything quite as cute, and such a unique idea.

My SnT is posted. If you haven't dropped by, I sure hope you can!! Happy Friday.

Those are too cute. I love the little poems with them. Some people are just to creative - how do they think up things like that?

How cute! I have never seen anything like those! I wouldn't want to take them apart, either.

My daughter made me one of
these at Girl Scouts for
a gift. They are so sweet,
hers was an angel with a
halo. :) Jewelgirl

My Mom gave me the 2 dishcloths as pant about 15 years ago. Wish I hadn't used them now. Love your idea to pass on to your girls.
